The Story of 4:00 AM — How I Stopped Waiting for Life to Happen

I wanted the life all my classmates posted all over Facebook.

How was I supposed to have the life I dreamed of when I could barely afford to live the life I loathed?

The helplessness ultimately forced me to give up the life I wanted.

I wish I could say this is whether the story ends, but the truth is.. I still had not learned the lesson of where happiness comes from.

“Honey… I don’t think this is actually going to make me happy.”

And with it came… a 4:00 am wake up call.
